Luther College recognizes the importance of undergraduate scholarly
activity. Student research is supported through a series of distinct
programs, most of which are coordinated by the Director of College
Honors, with oversight by the Honors Advisory Committee.
The Summer Student/Faculty Collaborative Research program provides
opportunity for Luther students to engage full-time in collaborative
research projects with Luther faculty members during the two months of
Luther's summer session (June/July). Grants are available to students
in any major. Each full grant provides $2,750 in stipend to the student
for eight weeks of full-time research work, on-campus housing for the
student, up to $500 for project expenses, and $500 in faculty
development funds for the faculty member. Proposals for smaller or
shorter research projects are also welcome this year. All returning
Luther students (current juniors, sophomores, and first-year students)
are eligible. Project proposals must be written and submitted jointly
by the student and faculty member. Collaborative teams normally involve
one student per faculty member.
Proposals for Summer Student/Faculty Collaborative Research Projects are
due in the Dean's Office (Union 262) by March 1st.
[Notification of decisions will be made by March 18.]
